Try the H100V. The Hodgdon website shows it getting just under 200fps more than a max 4350, H1000 or 4831 charge. (for the 142gr SMK). I am assuming the load data is all from the same barrel.

Yes sir, I totally agree. I will check my local secret place that has never failed me when it comes to powder or primers (he always had what I wanted in the past). I messaged the guy in this video some time back and I'm sure he's the one that said Hybrid H100V was the powder he was using with 130 Swift Sciroccos:


There's another guy who said his best results came from Re17

I'm actually going to try Re19 today or this Wednesday with the 130 Accubond. I did not try it with the 140. I've been trying to duplicate other's successes with the H1000 and Retumbo first. If you look at 6.5-284 on 6mmBR, the 2 top powders are H4831SC and H4350.

Dave Bruno, the guy who built it, said he used either N160 or N165 I can't remember but he said velocity was very good for a 24" barrel on the competition bench.

H100V is a relatively new powder, so there is not a lot of historical info out there. The stuff you are testing are the old standbys. So far I have found H100V to be consistent enough, but I will only have a full set of answers after and entire winter, since my loads were developed in spring and have been tested in summer. Now finally starting to cool off here in MI. I also have had a heck of a time getting CCI magnum primers, so just using regular CCI 200 primers in my 243 AI. Jan/Feb will tell how this is working when we get into late season coyote hunting.
